this free phone comes with many different apps and contact methods so that you can stay connected to the world. You also get a camera that is great for posting pictures to Facebook and Twitter.
Slide-out keyboards have remained consistently popular because people like touching and feeling real keys when they type.

Almost every modern feature phone can access wireless signals from routers, but this phone is something special.
